Batteries and electrical

Car Battery – We can help keep you fully charged.


The battery and electrical system are the heart of your car. The battery starts your engine and powers lights, wipers, windows, and other accessories. If you can’t start your car, it could be your battery, your starter or your charging system.

The battery also then maintains a constant electrical charge to keep it going, along with any extra power required when a car’s electrical system needs are more than the alternator is capable of supplying. Your local Midas dealers can test your car’s battery and charging system for any issues, and if need be, professionally fit a new battery that is right for your car, no matter what you drive.

A: A car battery lasts 3-5 years. Come into your local Midas for a battery test to be sure. That way you’ll know how much life is left and how soon you need a new battery.

Q: My car won’t start, but it’s not the battery. What’s wrong?

A: There may be a problem with your alternator. Call your local Midas – wecan do an inspection, tell you what the issue is and give you an estimate.

Q: If my car needs a jump, does that mean I need a new battery?
